11 For as the heavens are high above the earth,
So great is His mercy toward those who fear Him;
12 As far as the east is from the west,
So far has He removed our transgressions from us.
At times, believers become entangled in unforgiveness and bitterness. This is poison to any person. Unforgiveness and bitterness is a main hindrance to our faith. It is like drinking poison to get back at someone for how they hurt you. It’s foolish to believe that your unforgiveness will hurt someone else and not affect you.
There is good news, God has given us grace and made us righteous. Now we can deal with people according to who we are and not according to what they said or what they did to us. We, the body of Christ, are love, mercy and forgiveness at all times. We can walk in forgiveness. We can cancel the debt, we do not have to allow unforgiveness to destroy relationships God has brought into our lives to bless us.
Father, in the Name of Jesus, thank you, you have made me a new creation in Christ Jesus. Because I am a new creation, from this day forth, I deal with every relationship in my life according to who I am and not according to anyone’s mistakes, wrong doings or sin. From this day forth I have the grace to make peace in every relationship in my life as much as it depends on me. Amen.
